do this in a peaceful, orderly way. no mob, no coop, no insurrection. >> in the u.s., elections and inaugurations are the regular heartbeat of the nation. they have not emphasized the historical significance. they began the address with these words. >> we start today a celebration of freedom. >> the first president bush had the same theme calling it democracy's big day. >> a good place to talk as neighbors and friends. this is a day when the nation is made whole, differences are suspended. >> democrats and republicans side-by-side as they take an oath to uphold and defend the constitution swearing on the bible. others prefer family bible. on sunday he placed hand on the bible from the first lady family. today, he swore on lincoln's bible and that of martin luther king whose birthday is celebrated today. many believe that george washington added a phrase that is not in the official oath itself, saying so help me god. most other presidents chose to receive as president obama did today. >> the oath i have sworn before you today, like one recited by others in this capital, was an oa
, you know, president obama is now won election twice with over 5%, 50% of the vote, which is, you know, he is, he and joe biden, those only two offices everybody votes for. and he has won. he got over 50%. so he will make his case. i think what is different, what is significantly different, there will be confrontation but i think the first time you're seeing the president move hess campaign organization, we just saw this in the last few days, move it into advocacy on the issues for his agenda during the second term. that's unprecedented. no president's ever been able it do that. and this time it is not with some rinky-dink campaign organization that we've seen in the past. this is the biggest campaign organization ever seen in the united states. 28, 30 million people. those people making the case to their members of congress regardless of party, whether the member is democrat or republican. i think could change the way we look at a lame duck second term presidency because of the power of that grassroots organization. bill: wow! that's a big statement, joe. back to the initial question
cannot-- they still cannot get over. they couldn't get over the first election. they're still shocked at the second election, to use a pun, shell shocked. >> sean: and mr. johnson, i have a wild thought perhaps the n.r.a. disagrees with the president's policies because she represent an assault on the second amendment to the constitution. and more, new york congressman charlie rangel said that the races in the south are to blame for the lack of gun laws in that region. >> new york in a the lot of areas and some of the states and some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome. >> sean: so, with reaction to this the entire gun control showdown, author, attorney, david limbaugh and fox analyst, juan williams, juan, your reaction? >> well, i don't think that this is about the president's race, but i think that race has a lot to do with this conversation and that's why i think you have congressman johnson from georgia, saying, hey, look, if you look across the south, high membership in the n.r.a., high amount of gun ownership, principally among whites and in fact, mostly
the president for a moa. he's only the 16th president ever elected to two consecutive terms. we've heard a lot about second term curses that have brought down richard nixon, hampered ronald reagan, bill clinton. people forget reagan was able to get tax reform, bill clinton was able to get a balanced budget. certainly a big opportunity for the president but fully aware in the white house, a lot of challenges ahead as well, jenna. >> certainly not challenges for a father. nice to see the first family, ed, and how much the girls have grown up over the last four years. what we're looking at for the president tomorrow besides the hair styles and what everybody is wearing at the inauguration is what is he going to say? what will be the address to the nation tomorrow? you mentioned some policy challenges ahead. what are you hearing about tomorrow's address and how that might set the table, if you will, for the years to come? >> true. what i'm hearing is the state of the union address next month is really where the president will go with a deeper dive on policy, whether it be gun control, immigration
, and balanced peace plan that was proposed by me as the prime minister of israel. >> during the u.s. election, i was in israel last summer. mitt romney, governor mitt romney, the republican candidate, came by. it seemed to me that bebe netanyahu was essentially endorsing mr. romney's candidacy. they did a big fundraiser in israel. you were very critical of that. do you think that prime minister netanyahu was unfairly or inappropriately intervening in the u.s. election? is that why you were so critical? >> i think it was a terrible mistake. i don'i don't think that it is r duty or it is our interest to intervene in the political process in the united states. the appearance of support by netanyahu to romney, i must say i know romney very well. he's really a genuine good friend of israel and i respect him very much, but it was not for us to interfere in this process. >> you called governor romney, mr. prime minister, a good friend of israel. is barack obama a good friend of israel? >> no doubt in my mind. i was very close to president bush when he was president. we are still friends. what happens h
four, five years ago the president of the us u then senator, promised if elected, by the end of my first term, i'm going to cut that first deficit in half. we didn't hear anything about that yesterday. in fact, it sounded more like spend, spend, spend, and in fact, if you're just waking up, you were sleeping through the speech yesterday, the main speech point was whatever you need, middle class, we're going to give it to you. >> brian: education, roads, communication, networks, science, labs, a lot of investment in infrastructure, which means investment infrastructure means do you need revenue? to get revenue, you raise taxes. >> gretchen: you lint like what he was talking about, maybe you liked that it was short. under 20 minutes. we heard that one president in history gave a two-hour speech. >> brian: and he died. >> steve: he did. >> gretchen: he did soon after of pneumonia. let's talk about that whole idea of the middle class, though, because these are the facts, folks. the median household income in 2007 was $54,489. of course, that was before the banks collapsed and before th

theys were in the middle of an election. >> that statement is incredible to me. hillary is a very smart woman. she has know to figure out why this attack took place. if you have any hopes of preventing another attack. there's a difference between a single murder than a murder committed by the mafia and 30 people. >> sean: and if it's a spontaneous event they're not responsible. if it's terrorism and they did not listen-- >> and when you go over the testimony, that's what this is all about. this is all about the obama narrative that we heard in the inaugural address, no more wars. the world is at peace because he got bin laden. meanwhile, it it looks like we're looking at a more dangerous world now. we're looking at a proliferating al-qaeda in all different forms, proliferating islamist extremism. and i thought algeria was leading from behind, in libya and-- >> mr. mayor, always good to see you. >> i'm as perplexed as you are. >> sean: you figure out this motivation, call me. >> promise, deal. >> sean: and coming up, liz cheney and retired air force lieutenant general thomas mcinerney ar
